River God by Michelangelo
“River God,” a preparatory rendition of a human torso by Michelangelo Buonarroti, was created between 1526 and 1527. Made of raw clay and fiber on a wooden base, pieces such as this were used as reference models for collaborators and to garner approval from customers prior to creating the marble sculpture. The sculpture was intended to be placed at the base of a Medici tomb in the Church of San Lorenzo.
